A man has been arrested after border police found migrants hidden in his car dashboard and hollowed out back seats.
One desperate person was found curled into a tiny space in the car’s dashboard, while the other was hidden in the back seats, which had their padding removed to make space to hide a person.
Thought to be Guineans, the man and woman were given first aid because they had so little air to breathe while hidden.
The driver of the car was a Moroccan, who had been trying to smuggle the migrants into Ceuta, Spain’s North African enclave, when his car was inspected on Monday.
Refugees and migrants have made increasingly desperate bids to find a way from Africa to Europe this week.
One man was found stuffed into a Moroccan woman’s suitcase, while more than 1,000 people tried to storm the 20ft border fence between Ceuta and Morocco on Sunday.
Although no one managed to get through, two people were injured scaling the fence, while 50 Moroccan and five Spanish border guards were also hurt in the attempt – one guard lost an eye.
African migrants often use Spain’s two enclaves in Morocco, Ceuta and Melilla, as a way into Europe.
It is thought that most illegal migrants are found and returned to Morocco; those who make it into the Spanish regions are eventually repatriated or released.
